Detection and treatment of molecular relapse in acute myeloid leukemia with RUNX1 (AML1), CBFB, or MLL gene translocations: frequent quantitative monitoring of molecular markers in different compartments and correlation with WT1 gene expression.


OBJECTIVE Our objective was to determine the value of frequent minimal residual disease (MRD) monitoring in acute myeloid leukemia (AML) as a robust marker of impending relapse, and whether treatment benefits patients during the MRD-positive phase of their disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS Frequent MRD monitoring was performed in all AML treatment phases… (More)
